Weave Care and Tips

Posted on: June 1, 2011


WEAVE CARE AND TIPS

Straight hair
• When brushing/combing your extensions, start at the ends and work your way up. Always brush/comb in a downward motion.
• Try to avoid using alcohol-based products as much as possible (mousse and hair spray). These types of products will dry out your weave.
• Excess heat can damage your extensions. Try to limit the use of heated appliances.
• You may find it helpful to wrap your weave at night and sleep with a satin or silk scarf. This will reduce the amount of heat you will have to use on the hair.

Curly/Wavy Hair
• Try to avoid using alcohol-based products as much as possible (mousse and hair spray). These types of products will dry out your weave if used too often.
• I recommend only using a quality polisher or gloss as needed.
• For long wavy hair, try braiding the hair at night to prevent tangling.
• Most tightly curled styles should never be combed nor brushed. I find it best to figure comb it instead.
• Always sleep with satin bonnet. This will help prevent the hair from become frizzy and/or matted.

Shampooing and Conditioning
• Use quality moisturizing shampoos and conditioners on your hair
extensions.
• You may find it easier to shampoo and condition your hair while in the shower. Extensions are more likely to tangle if shampooed upside down in the sink.
• Distribute shampoo and conditioner evenly throughout the hair. While working the product through the hair, wash the hair in one direction. Avoid scrubbing, rubbing, or bunching the hair together. This could cause the hair to tangle.
• Be sure to rinse all of the shampoo and conditioner from under the tracks.

Removal
• I highly recommend that you allow a licensed professional to remove your sew-in. However, if you insist on doing the removal on your own, you may find it helpful to use either manicure scissors or a seam ripper.
• Before shampooing your hair, detangle your hair thoroughly BEFORE shampooing. This will help prevent your hair from becoming tangled and matted.
• Treat your hair and scalp to a deep condition.
